The second edition of the Oxford American Handbook of Rheumatology offers practical, point of care guidance on the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic rheumatologic problems. Holding a large amount of information in a compact pocket book, this remarkably comprehensive resource covers the full range of the discipline, from new biologic therapies used in the treatment of inflammatory arthritis, to new information on drugs, chronic widespread pain, shoulder/neck pain, and complementary medicine. Its easy-to-use format and organization allows easy access to precise, prescriptive information. Since the first edition's publication, new diagnostic criteria have been introduced for major rheumatic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. This second edition incorporates the latest diagnostic criteria as well as new therapeutic agents for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
